Happy Friday friends! This has FLOWN by for me. Work has been crazy, I have been focusing a lot on healthy eating and trying to keep in an exercise rhythm. All in all, it has been a full week of self improvement and it is making me feel so much better about myself. Even though it has been a busy week, I am thankful to be busy. Soooo… I thought today I would share some of the things that having been making my life just a little bit better and a little bit easier recently.
2018. What a year it was. Full of ups and downs. Some of the happiest times in my life but also some of the saddest. It is a year I can say I will honestly never forget. It was the year I fell in love. The year I lost someone dear to me. The year I found the job I always wanted. It was a big year. A huge year.
I love writing and blogging, but I will admit that I am not the best at doing it consistently. I want to, I want to post a couple times a week, but it just doesn’t happen. Things get busy and this gets put on the back burner. I prioritize dinner with friends, travel, sleep, watching Netflix over this. As I think about it more and more, I realize that this is something that means a lot to me and should probably be prioritize over others.
So here is my first update after my first official week on the fitness train. All in all it went okay; not great but also not terrible. The week was not the best I could have done, but I am thinking of it as a good start. Overall, the week had ebbs and flows. There were a couple of days where I just felt like a blob (for lack of a better term) and didn’t want to do anything (including cooking). What I decided, is sometimes we have blob days and that is okay. But instead of letting one blob day ruin the whole week, let it mess with that day then bounce back. But lets talk about how things went.
I’ve written about my relationship with fitness and my trends with working out in past posts (you can find those here and here). Well I am back with an update on how things have been going lately. Probably unsurprisingly, I have been off my fitness game since I moved to Seattle. With everything that has been going on in my life (confused? read my last post!), fitness was the last thing on my mind.
